A computer illustration of the creation of separate parallel universes as fluctuations in a quantum foam

“Scary action from a distance” can lead to a multiverse. Here’s how.

Some interpretations of quantum mechanics propose that our entire universe is described by a single universal wave function that is constantly dividing and multiplying, producing a new reality for every possible quantum interaction. That’s a pretty bold statement. So how do you get there?

One of the earliest realizations in the history of quantum mechanics is that matter has a wave property. The first to propose this was the French physicist Louis de Broglie, who asserted that each subatomic particle is associated with a wave, just like light can behave both as a particle and as a wave.
